140. La Alma Sola (The Last Soul Left in Purgatory)
No Feast Day
The last soul to remain in purgatory after all others had been cleansed from sin and united with Christ in Heaven. See Lange, Santos de Palo (1991)/ 18 and 23-24 and fig. 31.
A standing or kneeling-and-floating figure of indeterminate sex in a white robe with arms crossed on breast; something like a star in the background. A particolored skirt may be meant to represent the supposed flames of Purgatory. This subject very much resembles # 41a except for that figure’s crown of roses.
Probably a sort of patron of retaining baptismal innocence.
